Combining leather and synthetic holster technologies, Safariland has introduced the Bianchi Allusion series of concealment holsters.
The Bianchi Allusion series currently comes in three models: the 125 Consent, the 130 Classified and the 135 Suppression. All are made of high-grade leather wrapped about a thermal-molded synthetic core, which allows quick drawing and one-handed reholstering.
"With the Allusion series, we have combined tradition and technology for the 21st century," said James Dawson, Safariland category director for the Bianchi brand. "We've successfully integrated Bianchi's ingenuity in handcrafted leather design with the technological advances that Safariland has made with synthetic materials."
The Bianchi Model 125 Consent is an open-top holster with dual snap belt loops for a high-ride hip carry, while an extra set of belt loops allows the holster to be worn inside the waistband for more discreet carry.
The Model 130 Classified features thumb break retention for those looking for additional security measure. To maintain optimal flexibility in the thumb break, the strap is suede-lined, while the synthetic liner encompasses the rest of the holster.
The 135 Suppression features an inside-the-waistband design for concealment and comfort. The holster sits low enough that the thickest part of the hangun lies directly underneath the belt, helping to obscure its shape. It also comes with two tuckable C-clips, a soft foam cover facing the body and a cant for putting the grip into the kidney area to reduce printing.
All Allusion holsters are designed to fit 1.5 inch belt widths, and are available in full-grain leather with a plain finish in tan or black.
